A friend in Ohio purchased this Yamaha Moto-Bike at the Barber Vintage Festival and sent it to me for restoration. It’s a 1975 Model B. This makes it a year older than the Moto-Bike I restored for my cousin a while back.
The bike was being ridden when purchased. It is missing the rear fender, chain guard and kick stand. The pedals and handlebar grips are replacement parts and not close to original in appearance.
The crank is loose and the right crank arm hits the swing arm. This has been happening for so long the crank arm has worn through the tubing of the swing arm.
